“How did you get in here?”
That’s not what you want to hear when you’re staring into the sea-green eyes of the hottest man you’ve ever seen. Yet I suppose it’s a fair question, considering I’m an uninvited stranger standing in Boone Mason’s kitchen.
If you think that’s bad—just wait. It gets worse.
This charming and wealthy playboy, who can’t pay his bills on time or find his way to the grocery store (but we all have flaws, right?), is sweet. Confident. Playful. He’s almost perfect. And, to make matters worse …
He’s smitten with me.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re rolling your eyes. You’re assuming this is some opposites attract situation—or that maybe we can be friends who turn into something more.
How can this be a bad thing?
Well, it’s simple. I’m not the kind of girl you fall in love with. Just to be sure, the universe reminds me of that in an unforgettable, in-your-face kind of way.
I might have broken into Boone’s house, but I won’t let him break my heart. I won’t break his either. There’s too much on the line to be that reckless.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
The Boone swoon is real and I am feeling it...hard!
But more than that I adored Jaxi. This woman had lived a hard life (which isn't something I've seen too much from Adriana Locke and I appreciated it). She may have been down on her luck but she never counted herself out. She knew she could rely on herself to figure it out, she always had. But that was before she accidentally climbed into Boone's life.
The attraction was there from the start but life and circumstances kept them from acting on it. I loved that for as hard as Boone pushed, Jaxi pulled back. And good thing because it let them really get to know one another. Dream and hope for something they had never dared to before. Happiness. Love. Family.
Oh my heart- the longing, the anticipation (that was well worth the wait). The hard decisions that had to be made, freaking WADE! All of it kept me absolutely glued to my kindle. Jaxi and Boone's slow-burning, not quite friends to lovers romance was everything I needed, everything I wanted, everything that's good and heartwarming about small-town romance.
